Winning the Tour de France isn't only about having the ability to get uphill fast. You've got to have nerves of steel going downhill too.

Chris Froome proved Wednesday that he's got both.

OXFORD, Miss. - In a town where Confederate soldier statues stand sentinel on the courthouse square and a university campus, Anthony Hervey remained an anomaly — a black man who draped himself in the Confederate battle flag and publicly declared his loyalty to the secessionist Lost Cause and his belief that the Civil War was not fought over slavery.

Finally, Donaldson saw the stadium's new video boards as the car approached and thought back to his old memories of playing for the green and gold.

"I don't know how many guys have done three majors in a year," Spieth said. "I'm sure there's only been a few."

Very few, actually.
